    Stowers PTO

    The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), is a non-profit organization that works to make a difference for all our children and the parents in our school community.

    The PTO Board, the Principal and a Teacher Representative meet once a month to plan activities at Stowers.

    The PTO efforts are directed toward the goals of promoting the welfare of students at school, in the home and community. The organization strives to create a closer relationship among parents, students, and school officials. The PTO supports the School Volunteer Program to provide opportunities for adults to support the classroom environment.

    Research demonstrates that parent involvement is essential for student success. Although you may not become involved in all committees and support organizations in the school, we encourage the following activities for your parental support:

    • Join the school parent/teacher organization (PTO) and participate in meetings and activities.

    • Have lunch at school with your child regularly.

    • Volunteer in your child's classroom.

    • Establish a daily study time at home (even when there's no homework).

    • Participate in the Continuous School Improvement (CSI) efforts at your child's school.

    • Keep informed of school events and activities by reading school newsletters and your child's classroom newsletter.

    • Communicate frequently with your child's teacher.

    • Prepare for and participate in parent-teacher conferences


    • Ensure your child has a well-balanced breakfast and comes to school with completed homework, lunch money and school supplies.



    There are many volunteer opportunities for parents eager to get involved with their students education or for other interested community members.  Check with you child's teacher for specifics and to complete any necessary forms in addition to the following.

    DDESS School Boards

    Being a DDESS school board member is a serious responsibility but one that offers significant rewards - the primary reward being the opportunity to actively participate in the process of educating our children.

    However, unlike the school boards in the Local Education Authority (LEA), DDESS school boards act purely in an advisory capacity, providing input to the Superintendent and administrators in the areas of fiscal, personnel and educational policies, procedures and programs. The DDESS school district superintendent makes final decisions on matters affecting the school district.  Read more about the responsibilities of a DDESS School Board


    Partner-in-Education Program (PIE)

    PIE is based on the concept that "human capital" is the most important resource a partner can provide. The greatest benefit to education is derived from the personal involvement of volunteers in schools. Stowers  ES has established successful partnerships with the 2nd Battalion 29th Infantry Regiment (2-29 Infantry)
